Our Favourite Patios to Hit Up in Surrey

Patio season is upon us and we love a good patio! There’s something about enjoying a great meal and a cheeky drink in the sunshine. And when the weather is on the cooler side, cozy up under a patio heater and tuck a blanket across your lap! And Surrey is THE spot to visit when you’re in the mood for a great meal outdoors… there is a reason why it is fast becoming Greater Vancouver’s best restaurant scene. While the list of restaurants in Surrey is as big as the city itself, here are some of our favourite patios to hit up.

My Shanti – The garden-style patio at My Shanti is a beautiful extension of the authentic and cozy atmosphere inside the restaurant, and the perfect spot to savour a delicious Indian feast. (South Surrey | 15869 Croydon Drive)

Hooked Fish Bar – Hooked Fish Bar epitomizes the West Coast lifestyle. The family-run Crescent Beach business boasts unobstructed views of the ocean from its wrap-around deck, and the #1 chowder in town. Its beachy, casual menu features favourites like fish and chips, fish tacos and steamed mussels. (South Surrey | 12157 Beecher Street)

Morgans Restaurant & Wine Bar – Mile long views of Morgan Creek Golf Course and the mountains in the distance, make the patio at Morgans Restaurant & Wine Bar the ultimate spot for relaxing after a round of golf or just whiling away a summer afternoon. (South Surrey | 3500 Morgan Creek Way)

Dominion Bar & Kitchen– Soak up the sun with a refreshing drink on a patio with a decidedly urban vibe at Dominion Bar & Kitchen. The focus is on locally sourced ingredients, signature cocktails, BC wines and craft beer, and time-tested hospitality. (North Surrey | 13475 Central Avenue, Unit D1)

The Roadhouse Grille – Unassuming from the outside, the Roadhouse Grille is a fun funky 50s American diner, and their cozy homestyle cooking is a hit with the customers. Their patio is surrounded by greenery and if the weather is a little on the questionable side, you can sit in the heated atrium and still get those patio vibes. (South Surrey | 1781 King George Boulevard)

Tap Restaurant – You can’t help but feel as if you’ve stumbled across a well-kept secret on your first visit to Tap Restaurant in South Surrey.
